This place is not a fashion plate kinda eatery, interior needs lots of attention, and a kinda rough area of albany, but take yourself past all of that, and go eat there.Service is not the greatest but you can get past that too. Now the food, the name means grocer and these people put it on the table,everything they pulled out of the shopping bag was good, maybe the apps. were a bit heavy on the oil,but most of late seem to be that way(i dont think they use commerical fryers) From the breads to the desserts everything was well made and fresh,Dont miss this place, oh yea its a good value toooooo. BOY I WISH THIS SITE HAD SPELL CHECK

Had gone to the Albany Public Library to get back in their good graces-7 dollars in fines-yeah I'm a bad one. And had not a lot left in my pockets when the sign 5.95 buffett caught my eye. Indian food, reasonably priced and it's Saturday-no charge for parking. I'm in.

You can tell alot about an indian restaurant by its nan just like a chinese place by their cripy noodle things and mustard. At the Gandhi, the nan was really good, soft yet with crisp edges. The tandoori, two differant kinds of rice, a good cup of tea and pudding. Was really good and worth going to.

Lunch for the first time. All items were cool, none were hot and I ate at 1:45 on Friday. it should have been their best day.
I. Hope not.

Food was tasty.selection was good. but it simply was no better than the handful of all you can eat buffet in the capital region.

It was cheap however..lunch for two with one can soda was under $15 without the tip.

We have eaten here several times, under both the old and the "new management".
Lately we have been taking advantage of the 50% off coupon they offer.

There are many Inidan restaurants in the immediate vicinity and this one might have the least pretty decor but we do enjoy the food and there usually isnt a crowd so we can get in and out fairly quickly--the last time we were here we were headed to a concert after dinner.

My girlfriend ordered a chick pea dish that was really tasty--just cant remember the name of it now (sorry) We love the garlic nan and also the spiced tea can be requested hot or cold.

We went for dinner here.
The appetizer were very oily & tasteless and that lentil soup was horrible in taste. We didn't expect it that horrible. They seriously need good recipes for those things.

On the other hand a couple of vegetable dishes were good so we were able to eat something out there.
Manager is good and trying to improve (hopefully he reads this) and Food is cheaper.

Another disappointment in Indian restaurant in US.
